A Mountain Home, Arkansas man is behind bars after a local minister contacted police about the man allegedly sexually assaulting a 14 year-old mentally handicapped child.

The minister contacted Lt. Terry Johnson, with the Baxter County Sheriff's Office, and told him forty five year-old Anthony Ray Wiser wanted to turn himself in to "make things right."

Wiser has been charged with forcible rape and second-degree sexual assault. He is being held in the Baxter County jail on $25,000 bond.
